I am Partner and Head of Financial Services at Clearwater International, with nearly 30 years’ mid-market corporate finance experience, including 21 years at Rothschild & Co, where I worked on more than 50 transactions spanning acquisitions, disposals, fund raisings and IPOs.

Most recently I was Chief of Staff and Director of Corporate Finance and Development at specialist FTSE 250 banking group Provident Financial and was involved in the successful defence of Non-Standard Finance’s £1.3bn hostile bid in 2019.

Based in Clearwater’s office in Leeds, I am dedicated to leading Clearwater’s sector team, strengthening the firm’s relationships with private equity and corporate clients, and transacting across a range of deals within the sector.

I’m proud to be part of Clearwater’s success story, as it continues to extend and develop its capabilities across territories, sectors and areas such as ESG. Clearwater’s performance speaks for itself and the firm has a track record and reputation for delivery, particularly when it comes to complex, sizable deals with sophisticated funding requirements.
